Advanced RF Filters for
V2V and Other Automotive
Wireless components must create a solid technological foundation as connected cars expand their presence in the consumer world.
Automobiles are relying on a growing number of wireless technologies as the connected car
becomes a reality. Many vehicles already support LTE
data connections and operate as small WiFi hotspots.
Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure
(V2X) communications are expected to become a
reality over the next few years, using the IEEE 802.11p
standard over the 5. 9 GHz Dedicated Short Range
Communications (DSRC) band.
The DSRC band is a gateway to better collision-avoidance and other intelligent transportation
applications, but creates formidable RF challenges.
As this connected-car trend unfolds, vehicles are
increasingly using higher-frequency RF bands that
are very close to those used for other purposes, and
interference between these bands has become a key
